Wooden Lady Lola Ready To Sail

A tender is a small boat that ferries passengers between ship and shore when a ship is anchored in a harbor. The tender's new owners, Rob Newell of Black Hawk Capital Managers and Jon Aune of Whitehawk LLC, were thrilled with their purchase of the 28-foot, torpedo-style craft - especially the fact that it has put in at ports from Gibraltar to Galapagos/George Kingson, Coeur d'Alene Press.

Question: Anyone know what happened to the 205-foot Lady Lola?

Huckleberries Hears …

… that Duane Hagadone now owns the 205-foot mega-yacht Lady Lola again. In fact, HucksOnline sources say that he bought the yacht back for about half or less that he originally sold it for. Hagadone's original asking price for the Lady Lola was around $51 million.
